5/13/13 Daily Devotion

Deuteronomy 30:19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live

God laid before the people the choice of life and prosperity, or death and destruction. He asked them to walk in obedience, following His laws and decrees. As they were obedient, God would be generous. For their obedience, God was going to bring to them good and prosperous lives. If they chose to follow their own desires, if they chose to worship other gods, if they chose to walk their own paths, they would then experience death and destruction. It seems that placed before them was a decision that should have been simply made, and that is the same place where we often find ourselves. We know what we should be doing, yet we find ways to avoid taking the correct path. We do not always do this out of selfish ambition. Sometimes it’s just because we think our way is the best. What would life be like of we considered God before we made any decision? Our lives would definitely be blessed.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see how blessed my life will become as I allow You to influence my decisions.
